  1. Universe is stranger than we imagine. But now my script doesn't show any runway with unknown surface. I'm happy... many thanks for your support !
  2. No real problem as I have vacations, good weather and a bunch of other things to do 😏
  3. And here ESSA (Stockholm Arlanda) APX52100.bgl -> Base ESSA_ADEP4_SL_ORBX_P3D_Statics.bgl -> ORBX Stockholm Arlanda So it happens not only for 29palms. ESSA.zip
  4. OK, I added three BGLs: APX50140.bgl -> Base ADE_FTX_GES_EDDN.bgl -> ORBX germany south EDDN_ADE.bgl -> 29palms EDDN EDDN.zip
  5. Searching runways.txt for " EDDN", I found: 1. Airport EDDN :N49:29:54.9951 E011:04:39.9991 1046ft in file: Scenery\0601\scenery\APX50140.bgl Runway 10 /28 centre: N49:29:55.4486 E011:04:39.3506 1046ft Hdg: 98.600 true (MagVar 1.000), Concrete, 8841 x 148 ft 2.

The same happens for Stockholm Arlanda (ESSA): addon from ORBX. Currently, I cannot attach a file...I will try in a following post.
  6. Hi, I want to use the output of makerwys for a moving map app that doesn't support P3D V4 correctly, so I translate runways.xml to the app's xml format by a Powershell-Script. But it seems, Makerwys (4.872) doesn't give me the right runway material for some (addon ?) airports. Example: runways.txt output for EDDN from 29palms: 1. Makerwys finds the default BGL Scenery\0601\scenery\APX50140.bgl: Runway 10 /28 centre: N49:29:55.4486 E011:04:39.3506 1046ft ... Hdg: 98.600 true (MagVar 1.000), Concrete, 8841 x 148 ft 2. Makerwys finds a delete operation (exclusion BGL ?): ORBX\FTX_EU\FTX_EU_GES_05_SCENERY\scenery\ADE_FTX_GES_EDDN.bgl Deletions check for Airport EDDN: Delete all taxiways!

My question: would it be possible for Makerwys to takeover the runway material in the case of runway deletion, if the runway's name is identical ? Especially in the case of mixed grass/hard stuff runways (f.e. ESSD), I find it helpfull to get this information out of the moving map app. regards, Quaxman. Runways - Copy.zip
  7. Sorry for wasting your time, I found a hint in www.fsdeveloper.com , stating: That's a very old limitation of the FSX/P3D rendering engine. For some reason, the sim's built-in instant replay will not render any SimObjects that were injected from SimConnect clients. Tools like SODE, FSDT's couatl and even AI Traffic generators are affected by this. I have posted a request to change this in LM's Prepar3D forum a long time ago, but did not get a response... A workaround to this is to use a 3rd party recorder/replay tool, like FSRecorder or such. The objects are displayed when using those. Meaning: it's not a bug but a feature 🤒 I checked the behaviour, for example of the HOTAS rocker switch, again, it's the same in FSX and P3D: "send to FS as normal axis" -> works in replay mode "send direct to FSUIPC Calibration" : pan heading -> doesn't work in replay mode So, it seems to be a limitation of FSX and P3D. Just to be complete: in FSX, to limit the panning from 180° to some 90°, I modified standard.xml by setting AXIS_PAN_HEADING Value <AxScale> to 127, this doesn't work in P3D V4.2 any more as AxScale has another meaning. So, I limit the panning by setting a FSUIPC factor: 11=3S,256,D,33,0,0,0,*0.65 -{ DIRECT: PanHeading }- That works great in flying , but not in instant replay mode for the above reason. And the reason to drive the HOTAS throttle with FSUIPC is the absence of the function "view zoom set" in the sim itself, thanks to FSUIPC, I can use the big lever for zooming in and out. So, after browsing the whole internet, it seems, the only solution to this (admittedly marginal) problem is to cause Santa Claus to come some months earlier and bring me one of these praised replay plugins...🙂
  8. Hi, what works in FSX, doesn't in P3D V4.2 (installed some days ago with FSUIPC 5.131 registered version): I defined my T.Flight HOTAS throttle to zoom and the rocker switch on the throttle to view panning. Everything works ok when I fly "normally", but in the instant replay mode, the FSUIPC controlled axis don't work. After installing P3D, I defined the whole HOTAS in FSUIPC, but in instant replay mode, even the buttons (view next a.s.o.) do not work. Except from instant replay mode, everything in P3D/FSUIPC works well - as in FSX. Is there any setting in FSUIPC that I have forgotten to activate/define, so that FSUIPC 5 works in P3D instant replay mode ?
  9. I bought my SAITEK trim wheel long time ago - it's an old story and not FSUIPC related: After starting/restarting Windows, one has to turn the wheel until the Windows USB device detection sound comes up. It's a problem in the USB controller of the wheel.
